Leather - Tests for colour fastness - Change in colour with accelerated ageing


  • Leather + Leatherfibre Boards


  • Upholstery + Furnishing


  • DIN / CEN / ISO

This standard specifies various methods under which leather can be aged. The conditions of temperature (heat), temperature and humidity as well as cyclical changes of different temperature and humidity conditions are described.

In addition to evaluating color fastness, the aging processes described are also suitable for determining the dimensional stability (shrinkage behavior) of leather (described in DIN EN ISO 17130).
